When it comes to great sound, we donít compromise. Hi-X15 headphones use the award-winning drivers of the Hi-X series. The development of Hi-X (High Excursion) technology is the result of decades of experience and state-of-the-art engineering. By reducing all moving mass, Hi-X15 headphones offer impressive dynamic characteristics and an extremely fast response. The 44 mm Hi-X driver, with its vivid transients, reveals every sonic shade. Distortion-free reproduction down to the lowest frequencies allows for a linear and impressive natural reproduction of the low bass thatís accurate, not exaggerated. Thanks to their 25-ohm impedance, Hi-X15 headphones always deliver the greatest possible performance, whether youíre listening through a high-end headphone amplifier, reference AD-converter, analogue mixer, keyboard, mobile player, or laptop. Youíll always have the clear and precise sound you need to make important decisions about your work.
